Minicom Lowers Operational Costs and Increases Operational Efficiency for Data Centers and Server Rooms

With enhanced version of remote access management solution offering expanded support for PDU and console server vendors, IT managers preserve existing equipment

Minicom Advanced Systems, a leading developer of IT infrastructure access, control, and management solutions for data centers, announced today that they are introducing an enhanced version of their remote access management platform, AccessIT™, at Interop Las Vegas 2010, Booth #2729. With AccessIT, a Web -based management solution, IT personnel impose order on the chaos of mixed product environments with fast, secure, and simple remote access.


System crashes in the data center are potentially disastrous given today's expectations of 24/7 uptime, and short resolution time is essential. AccessIT's speed makes a significant difference when a server is down. IT managers shave critical seconds off downtime using single sign -on. Mission critical applications are restored quickly, with minimal disruption of workflow. With the inclusion of single sign -on and exclusive mode, users of AccessIT can now enjoy even more peace of mind when it comes to security. IT managers love that they can get the system up and running in hours rather than days or weeks, and that there is a short learning curve for new personnel.

A unique, open platform system, this cost -effective solution saves on IT expenditure by preserving past investments and preventing vendor lock -in. The latest version of AccessIT is an embodiment of Minicom's Real Needs™ approach. The ability to repurpose power, KVM, and serial equipment rather than replacing it with all new products radically reduces the overall cost of introducing a remote access management system. Companies only buy what they need rather than having to purchase entire packages. By embracing IT products from a wide range of vendors, AccessIT enables organizations to leverage their existing IT equipment, knowledge, and training. Additionally, this open platform system opens up choices: businesses have the freedom of choosing IT infrastructure products and vendors based on value, performance and quality.

IT managers enjoy a "single pane of glass" view of their IT infrastructure and access methods (power, serial, KVM, and software), enabling quick, easy access and control. AccessIT now supports a wide range of vendors of PDUs, such as APC, Black Box, CyberSwitching, Geist, Dell, Eaton, HP, and Server Technology, and a large selection of vendors of console servers, such as Cyclades (Avocent), Digi International, Aten, Perle Systems Limited, and OpenGear.

Visit Minicom at Interop in Las Vegas, Nevada, April 27th through 29th, at Booth #2729.
